LAST DAYS OF CAPITALISM

Found pages from old newspapers or pictorials, where different aspects of the late capitalist era are depicted in form of evocative metaphors. The missing text information, together with the two different treatments in the same image, enhance the sense of estrangement: the faded, almost black and white, realistic layer, recalls of journalistic photography, which have a taste of immediacy and History, meanwhile the geometrical shapes in flat colours are connected with the timelessness of the abstract, utopian ideas.

Since the future we inhabit doesn't look as promised, the positivist hope in a constant development has lost its raison d'etre, hence it becomes indispensable to look again at the referents from the past, still visible and radiant behind us, despite its ruinous current state.
